Four Holt schools were on lockdown for a time today after a bomb threat was found on a bathroom wall at the High School.

Along with the High School, the senior campus, Washington Woods and Horizon schools were sheltered in place with a perimeter lockdown while police with explosive detection K-9 units went through the high school. Normal operations resumed after the building was cleared.

Along with the students at the high school, the lockdown affected students from eight other schools who were there for a choir festival.
